Within a competitive electric power market, electricity price is one of the core elements, which is crucial to all the market participants. Accurately forecasting of electricity price becomes highly desirable. This paper ...
Witht he rise in group work across schools and universities, there has been a great deal of research regarding the beneficial impacts of teamwork on learning. However, research is limited in the area of assessment of group ...
Despite the widely documented benefits of exercise, very little is known about how individuals make the decision on exercise. In particular, the decision on the intensity of exercise has attracted only one US study to date, ...

Research on learning often focuses on ways that students learn in specific situations. Research investigate learning in specific topics, courses and institutions, and sometimes workplaces. The outcomes of such research ...
The thermal expansions and rotations that result from a linear in-plane temperature gradient field are fully restrained at the ends of a fixed beam. These restrained expansions and rotations will produce internal bending ...
This discussion revisits Tong and Lim's seminal 1980 paper on the SETAR model in the context of advances in computation since that time. Using the Canadian lynx data set from that paper, it compares exact maximum likelihood ...
This paper establishes a continuous-time stochastic asset pricing model in a speculative financial market with fundamentalists and chartists by introducing a noisy fundamental price. By application of stochastic bifurcation ...
The dynamics for interest rate processes within the well-known multi-factor Heath, Jarrow and Morton (HJM) specification are considered. Despite the flexibility of and the notable advances in theoretical research about the ...
We demonstrate the capability of X-ray micro-computed tomography to image the micro-structure of human cortical bone. At 5 μm voxel size we observe the complex morphology of the Haversian network in three dimensions. The ...
In the social science disciplines, the assumption that the data stem from a single homogeneous population is often unrealistic in respect of empirical research. When applying a causal modeling approach, such as partial ...
A basic question regarding quantum entangled states is whether one can be probabilistically converted to another through local operations and classical communication exclusively. While the answer for bipartite systems is ...
This paper formally analyses two exotic options with lookback features, referred to as extreme spread lookback options and look-barrier options, first introduced by Bermin. The holder of such options receives partial ...
We prove that the states secretly chosen from a mixed state set can be perfectly discriminated if and only if they are orthogonal. The sufficient and necessary condition under which nonorthogonal mixed quantum states can ...
